Axiomer®, an RNA editing technology, uses Editing Oligonucleotides (EONs) to target specific RNA for A-to-I editing by recruiting endogenous Adenosine Deaminase Acting on RNA (ADAR). This presentation highlights the therapeutic possibilities of this platform that are not limited to disease causing mutations and can potentially address high unmet medical needs by editing wild-type RNA to engineer proteins or modify their function as well as creating de novo mutations.
